Washington, DC – Congressman Visclosky released the following statement in response to Speaker Pelosi’s announcement that the U.S. House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry. 

“I support Speaker Pelosi’s announcement that the U.S. House of Representatives is moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry.  

“As Chairman of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, I am greatly concerned that the conduct of the President continues to threaten the safety and security of our nation and our allies.

“Given the seriousness of the President’s actions, I believe that the Speaker’s announcement is warranted.  

“I await the details of the information gleaned from the current Committee investigations.

“It is imperative that as the inquiry moves forward, Congress does not lose sight of its duty to address the pressing needs of the citizens of our nation.  

“These priorities include creating more opportunities for good-paying jobs, providing affordable health care options, decreasing the cost of prescription drugs, and ensuring that the dignity of all workers and individuals is recognized.”
